February 1, 2017 is the long awaited date for the announcement of the 2017 nominated California Young Reader Medal books. The CYRM committee spent the last year reading many excellent books, that were recommended to the committee, by students, teachers, and librarians. This year's nominated books will send students on exciting adventures as they take rockets into outer space, tinker with the many amazing inventions of Nikola Tesla, and discover the joy of words through the lens of one of our early lexicographical nerds. Congratulations to each of the nominees!
